[unisog] determining versions of SSL

Nessus 1.2 includes an active generic openssl vulnerability scan that works
and appears harmless (even to chronically fragile HP printers).


Remember that the problem is fundamental to OpenSSL, not Apache. You should
also be worrying about TCP ports 993, 995, 636, 25, 587, 465...

The first of our two compromises was late on the 11th, at which point 
our branch of the ddos network had some 3,000 hosts on it. UConn wins.

Btw, we think we've found a third-party Windows POP/IMAP server that was
built with a vulnerable version of OpenSSL. Awaiting vendor response. 
Old versions of OpenSSL are embedded in lots of things.
